Akrapovic evolution exhaust system for BMW M3
Akrapovic are gaining recognition for their high-end titanium exhaust systems for cars, however the Akrapovic name is more widely known for developing exhaust systems for motorsports and road bikes. More recently, Akrapovic has ventured into the development of exhausts technology in the high-performance car market.
With its high-tech facilities in Slovenia, Akrapovic utilizes cutting-edge technology alongside traditional craftsmanship to produce some of the most sought-after exhaust systems on the market.
All Akrapovic exhaust systems are constructed from the company’s own exclusively developed titanium alloy; a material 3 times stronger and more heat resistant than other titanium materials, while being 40% lighter than traditional stainless steel.
Our readers may be interested in the range of exhaust systems available for BMW models. At present, Akrapovic produce systems for the 335i (E90, E91, E92), M3 (E90, E92, E93), M6 (E63, E64) and X6 (E71).
Evolution exhaust system for BMW M3 (E90, E92, E93)
The system which has received the most attention to date is the Evolution exhaust system for BMW M3 (E90, E92, E93). This consists of flow optimized link pipes with 2 x 100 cpsi sports catalysts and integrated resonators with a completely newly developed split-end muffler system. This system is made completely from titanium, and reduces the overall weight when compared to the stock system by 23.97 kg (see photo below):
From approximately 2.500 rpm, the power increase is approximately 23 HP. The torque is almost constant at 34.7 Nm over the standard. The engine is also stronger in the higher rpm-range and elasticity is improved considerably. The improvement of acoustics also played an important role in the systemâ€™s development.
